I made it!!

Hello San Francisco!!

The last half of my plane ride went by in a blink of an eye thanks to my lovely wifi accessibility in the air. I swear I am never flying without wifi ever again! I managed to answer e-mails, catch up on blogs, and take care of other various fun projects. ๐Ÿ˜‰

When hunger hit I munched on the Almond Butter, Pumpkin Butter, and Raisin Sandwich I packed.

I know you are probably getting tired of seeing this combo on the blog, but its a new fave!

And when the drink cart came around for the second time I grabbed a club soda, pretzels and biscotti.

As much fun as I was having playing online on the plane, I was more than ready to get off when we landed.

Heading to baggage claim I felt like such a big shot seeing my name in lights on paper. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Every time I fly some where and I see people waiting and holding names, I always look for mine even though I know no one is suppose to be waiting. It was exciting for it to be a reality this time.

Bertolli really hooked me up with a car service to the hotel, I’m just sad I didn’t take any photos of the ride!

Bertolli also hooked me up with a great hotel room.

Check out my digs!

With the bleak forecast outside I was happy to spot a complimentary umbrella in my room as well.

The umbrella came in handy as I made my way to the marketplace for a quick bite.

I wasn’t sure what I was craving for my second lunch, but as soon as I stepped outside I knew I wanted a nice cup of hot soup. Derek has been going on this past week about having clam chowder so when I passed a seafood eatery I knew i found my place to eat.

After my soup I was craving chocolate – good thing I stumbled upon a chocolate mecca right next door. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The best part – FREE SAMPLES!!!

Just assume I ‘sampled’ alot of chocolate. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I also found my way into a cute tea room.

I ordered a large winter spice blend tea to help warm myself up.

So far I am in love with San Francisco! I can’t wait to meet everyone else! Its going to be a great weekend – stay tuned for lots of updates the next two days. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Happy Friday from 30,000 feet in the air!! I <3 flying AirTran and its onboard WiFi! This is my first experience accessing WiFi on a flight and after only logging in a few minutes ago, I already can’t imagine flying again without it. The $12.95 I spent to connect for my 4+ hour flight is more ยป
